2 side mounted 120mm fans blowing on mobo/cpu
4gb Corsair XMS2 (cm2x1024-6400) rated at 5.5.5.12.2t at 1.9v (800mhz)
2 8800 Ultras in SLI

I am using the 1205 beta bios.

I tried the following and got an error on one core in prime95:

FSB@1280 (stock 1066) to hit 3.2ghz on the Q6700 (core multi locked so I have to up the fsb)

Voltages:
Vcore: 1.375
Memory V: 1.9 (as stated in memory specs)
HT V: 1.3
NB Core: 1.4
SB Core: 1.5
CPU VTT: 1.55

My memory timings are all set on default and I have the fsb/mem unlinked and the memory at 800mhz.

With this setup I was at about 40c idle on the cores and about 60-63c under load on prime95. I understand the Q6700 has a pretty high temp rating, so are load tems in the low 60s ok?

The error happened on one core after about 45 minutes running.

Can anyone recommend good settings for this CPU, etc. Also, is my memory able to take any overclocking?

Also, since I recently updated the bios, I did not have some of the items disabled this guide recommends in the bios (I did have them disabled before) - can some of these, if left on, cause errors when running prime and you are overclocked? I can disable all the items in this guide and retest later.

Thanks!
hows it goin mate. well first of all flash ur bios to 1203. right there is your problem. ive got a q6600 and with the 1205 bios i couldn't load in passed 2.7ghz. lol. i was furiouse. with the 1203 bios im now stable at 3.78ghz. so its worth it. make sure you use the biosflash. if you dont there is a really high chance of you killing the board. this happend to me when i flashed in windows. hope it helps ya

Robilar addressed the effect the pencil mod had on other components some time ago.
As a result, I try to reduce vdroop. Not do away with it completely and definitely not to the point where you increase voltage in Windows or upon load.

Well, as I was warned, the 1205s are in fact terrible for OC. I wasn't able to get stable at all close to where I was in a prior version.

On that note, where can I get the 1203s? I didn't save those anywhere.

On the topic of temps, how long should I run a stress test before I can assume the max temp has been reached? It seems to stabilize about 30 min in, but how long should I run to know what my max "at load" temp is?

Thanks!

Most people seem to say 15 to 20 min. I've noticed 45 to 50 min in my q6700 seem to drop about 3 to 5c so I say an hour, but thats just what I noticed.

...if you give me ur email i will send u the 1203 rom.

Thanks, I got it from the FTP

I tried the EZ Flash 2 tool using a CD I burned with the bios file, but the tool couldn't find it (I tried looking on all the drives that showed up). I don't have a floppy drive, so would a flash drive or the like work? Why can't it see it on the CD I burned? The fike I got from the FTP was named "1203.bin", does it need to be a .rom file for EZ Flash to find it?

Thanks.

Believe it or not, EZ-Flash on my comp won't see USB flash drives. But if I put an SD card into my internal multi-card reader which is on a USB header, EZ-Flash sees that just fine. So I do BIOS updates that way and it works great!
